Greetings field workers.

I am seeking information from anyone who has had experience with trapping small
rodents, prefferably murids.

I have attempted several nights of trapping using 30x10x10 Elliot traps, with
a rolled oats, peanut butter, honey and vanilla essence mix as bait, with traps
on an index line 7m apart.

So far I have had no success.  I know that rats are scarce in this area
(Central Queensland) and I am interested to hear from anyone with similar
experiences.
